MarDelDance has been proud to host DisDANCE Film Festival. Films are curated and entered by submission. All films are viewed and then select films will be chosen based on monthly themes to be screen online for one entire month. The purpose of the MarDelDance DisDANCE Film Festival is to bring together creative individuals in both dance and film under this unprecedented time to foster creativity and support.

June: Spacial Awareness/Distancing 
July: Human Touch/Connection
